I recently messed up my motor by probably throwing a rod bearing.... now it is time to rebuild and since I was planning on going turbo I figure why not build the motor for it now. I am going with low compression pistons... probably about 8:1 or 8:5, also im doing crower rods, sleeves... new bearings and so forth.... anyways, my problem is I wasn't PLANNING on doing this just yet and currently dont have uite enough money for the turbo setup I want in addition to the motor work. I was just wondering if it would be ok to drive around N/A with the lower compression and also how much power loss can I expect? Of course it wont be nearly close to stock power, I just want to make sure it will be safe to drive on without the turbo and also want to make sure I wont struggle to get around with it. If anyone knows please let me know!
